I jump from a skyscaper into the ocean

dive down into the deep blue sea

where the fish are colorful and lively

and everything is quiet and serene

 

gentle rhythm of wavy drifting

as the anemonies and other things dance

and ripples on the floor of the ocean

like small imitations of the waves above.

 

swimming with the whales they are

so giant and strong and graceful

 

lazy lolling and calling in their eerie songs

moving here and there maybe going somewhere

 

maybe just moving around and now and then

back to the surface for some

 

air  and back down down deep

where pressure builds and light gets thin

 

then back up again sometimes leaping

up through the surface almost completely

 

out of the water like flying for

a second  or two  before

 

diving back in and eating more plankton . . .

big whales so graceful like ballerinas

 

in smooth slow motion moving faster

than you can imagine or dream.
